Badger and Cat

The other night we caught this on the webcam (Click on the picture to play the video).   Tora sat for several minutes quietly contemplating a badger which simply ignored him. Lots of badger activity at the moment – the poor pine marten turned up at 4am one night to find that every single nut had […]

Cat meet cat

This is Tora making the acquaintance of a tiffany glass cat lamp I bought in a shop in Dunoon a few months ago. We are very slowly making our way through the huge jar of Jelly Beans I bought R for his birthday which you can see in the background. Neither of us are fond […]

Advent Dec 17th – Cat in a Box

A few years ago I bought my mum a reproduction of the famous Egyptian cat for Christmas. No sooner had we taken it out of the box than Schrodi colonized it. He didn’t quite fit into the moulded polystyrene shape but he did his best.

Advent 2nd Dec – Christmas Box

This was Schrodi in a box the year before last. The box had contained a vegan food assortment – but it looks better with a cat. This is not the only weird box the cats have gone for (bearing in mind the old motto – “if it fits, I sit”). A few years ago now […]

Night of the Bat

I know the picture isn’t a bat, but bear with me. A few months ago I said to R that the cats were a bit past their best and rather too old and slow to catch things any more. How wrong can anyone be; quite aside from Tora and his little expeditions to the village […]

Everyone should have a hobby

We got a new webcam for the shed recently.  It is much higher resolution than the old one – which in one respect is great (in that the video is obviously far better quality), but unfortunately it means that motion under the fence where the wildlife comes from is not tripping off the motion detector […]

Cat and Badger

There was a funny clip on the shedcam last night (click on the photo for the video). This was Schrodi attempting to see a badger off and temporarily succeeding before Mr Brock realized that the aggressor was a lot smaller than him and returning peacefully to his main interest (the peanuts). Actually later on that […]

Fright in the Night

I was just going to sleep about 11pm yesterday when all of a sudden I heard a faint noise that sounded a bit like a cat fight. For a moment I thought it was my imagination, and then I noticed that Tora, who was sleeping on my pillow had pricked his ears up. Then it […]

Schrodi strikes again

My mum was sleeping in our new ‘snug’ while she was here. This is basically what used to be R’s office but done out with a new futon and a Japanese screen covering the servers and their associated mass of cables. At about 4am, Schrodi decided to complement my mother by bringing her a present […]

Night of the four mice

Well it was four rodents really… c. 1:30am Heard muffled meow from hall. Knew this sign of old so dashed into hall. Small shrew is on floor apparently dead with Schrodi standing over it proudly. Touched it lightly and it shot off under the bureau obviously not even injured. Went back to bed. This was […]
